Contrary to a magazine report, federal health officials say there is no evidence to suggest New York's recent encephalitis outbreak was anything other than ``Mother Nature at work.''
An article in the New Yorker Magazine mentions an Iraqi defector who claimed Saddam Hussein was developing a strain of West Nile-like encephalitis for use as a biological weapon.
Based on C-I-A recollections, the magazine report suggested the outbreak might have been an act of bioterrorism.
